End Of An Era

Moss Cottage Vintage has just gone through a major change. Due to the sluggish economy these last years, I have felt that my profit margin at the Fredericksburg Antique Mall isn’t were it should be. I am doing well on Etsy, but that is because my overhead is so low.

I like having a space in the mall because I like to “play” at displaying my items. But the space I was in was just too big and too expensive to make it worth my while. 

So, out with the old…

And in with the new!

I love my new space! It’s surprising how much stuff I was able to fit in there and my sales have already increased!!! If you come to the Fredericksburg Antique Mall, my booth is the third one on the left on the ground floor, right before you go into the back section. Send me a message if you are coming and I’ll try to meet you there.

Now onto some arts and crafts. Here are two cards I made recently. One for my nieces 16th birthday (she loves anything Tudor) and one for a gentlemen who loves fishing.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for now. Moving the shop was quite a big ordeal and I’m also busy with some household renovation projects. I hope I’ll have a chance to “art” again soon.

The Makeover

I have been very busy this year rearranging the shop and giving it a new look. I am doing this partly because I am carrying some different merchandise than before and partly to keep like merchandise together. I think the shop was somewhat “confused” before with retro and Shabby and industrial all mixed together. Now I have grouped similar items for more cohesiveness. I’m really starting to like the way it is coming together and enjoy going to the shop again instead of dreading it! Martin has come in twice to help me with bigger changes that I couldn’t do by myself. What a sweetheart. Anyway, here are some pictures I took today from the shop in Fredericksburg.

P.S. I did vacuum before I left!
